  1. When the boot is complete, you will be presented with a prompt to login

5. Login to the Box

When prompted, login to the box: User: ModelOp Center Password: ModelOp Center Upon first login, the “hello-world” demo will launch automatically. Follow along by pressing Enter or press ctrl+c to escape the demo.

ModelOp Center is now up and running. The ModelOp Center Dashboard is accessible from your host: You may also SSH into the box with the following command:

$ ssh -p 15022 ModelOp Center@

You are now ready to start scoring!

Additional Information

In addition to “hello-world”, ModelOp Center OVA comes with pre-installed Gradient Boosting Machine (GBM) model example. In order to run it:

$ cd GBM
$ ./prep.sh
$ ./run.sh

Note that first run might take time since required model packages are being installed into container. To view the output of the example (gbm_output.json):

$ cd /opt/data
$ less gbm_output.json

Press q to escape.

You can start / stop / get status from / restart ModelOp Center service using the following set of commands (make sure to use “sudo”):

$ sudo service ModelOp Center start 
$ sudo service ModelOp Center stop 
$ sudo service ModelOp Center status 
$ sudo service ModelOp Center restart

Optionally, you can install ModelOp Center CLI on your host running Virtual Box. This is how you connect CLI to ModelOp Center on VM:

$ ModelOp Center connect

You can also look at these scripts:

under the GBM folder for self-explanatory CLI command examples.
